Day 11: Semi-homemade Peppermint Crinkles

We hear you, you're enjoying all these fun treats that have been posted but you just haven't had time to make anything. It's the holiday season which also includes a full work week before Christmas. Let's not forget the dreaded trip to the mall for last minute shopping or heaven forbid the post office. Here's a recipe for you that requires no effort. In fact, it includes store bought cookie dough...*GASP*. Hehe. I know I mentioned I'm not a huge fan of store bought dough but when I made these cookies I have to say they turned out pretty darn good.

1 package peppermint sugar cookie dough
1/2 C powdered sugar
4 candy canes, crushed

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Roll dough into small balls and covered with powdered sugar.

Place on cookie sheet and using your palm flatten cookie. Bake for 8-10 minutes.

Crush candy canes and place in small bowl.

While the cookies are cooling, sprinkle the tops with the crushed candy.

How easy was that right? If you have 20 minutes to spare in your very busy schedule you can make these cookies. Eat them for yourself, place them out for Santa or give them away to your neighbors:-)
